The library has offered ebooks for years, mainly through our Overdrive catalog. The new ebooks through Hoopla are different. Just like the Hoopla audiobooks and videos, these ebooks are always available - which means no waiting lists!

To celebrate National Library Week, April 12 – 18, the Library is launching an Instagram account. You can find us at https://instagram.com/chelmsfordlibraryma/
Instagram is great for sharing quick photos, so we wanted to show off "24 hours in the library," with one photo every hour. (Since, unfortunately, we're not open 'round the clock, those 24 hours will be spread over the entire week.) We're going to be capturing slices of life in the library, our collections, our patrons - and maybe you!
Here's a sample of some photos so far:
Check us out at https://instagram.com/chelmsfordlibraryma/, follow us, share our photos, and comment to let us know what you think. And, be sure to tag your own photos #chelmsfordma so we can follow you too!Posted in Current News, Programs | No Comments »
